Community Yard Sale, July 13th and 14th

Yard SaleWe are in the planning stages to have a community Yard Sale this summer.  It will be open to all members of the community, ECHPOA membership is not required to participate.  If you would like to participate either by having items for sale on your property or if you have a few items you wish to “donate” to the Association, please contact Dan Colligan at djcolligan@gmail.com to make arrangements.  A map will be created for “treasure hunters” to find all participating properties.  You can pick up a copy of the map during the Yard Sale weekend at the Association Building, 86 Elk Creek Drive, Bailey, CO.  Donated items, hot dogs, and drinks will also be sold at the Association Building.  Money raised will help build the new shelter and dock at the pond.  Please attend our next monthly Association meeting on Wednesday, June 5th, 7 pm, to volunteer to help, express your ideas, or learn more.

“A bad day of fishing….”

As the quote goes “A bad day of fishing… Fishing May 12, 2013is better than a good day of work.” ~Author Unknown

Thanks to the snowfall and spring runoff, the pond is full, the water is still running in, and about to go out the overflow pipe!  Fishing reports are also good.  Ken Perdew submitted this picture of Duane Thompson fishing at the pond last weekend.  To view more pictures go to the Fishing Pond page under the Photo Gallery menu above.
